xbox hd drive on netbook


Standard Member
I know its possible to use as a dvd drive for installing o/s just wondered if it will work with the dell mini 10 on its way to me with windows 7 starter edition ??

Or should i say will it be recognised at boot up, is it a simple cmos setting?

If you're on about the xbox HD-DVD drive then I'm pretty sure you can. Someone I know wanted to get one because CEX were selling them cheap and they'd work out well as an external DVD drive for a netbook.

This definitely works, i used to use mine to install programs etc on my acer one.

Its just an external usb drive, xp and vista pick this up straight away:)
